    Default GA-X79S-UD5 + i7-3930k overclock not stable

    Hello again my peoples,

    I posted a thread earlier this year asking for overclock help. however, it was right at the start of the semester and i had to go back to defaults. rather than necropost, i figure i'd start fresh with y ycurrent progress.

    now, i believe i'm headed in the right direction but still keep getting stuck, initially prime95 crashes right away then other errors subsequently follow after my changes, which makes me think i'm close?

    i'm running:

    i7 3930k overclocekd to 4.4ghz
    gtx 480
    32gb (8x4) DDR3, PC3-10600, DIM, 1333MT/z, CL9, 240 Pin, 1.5V

    GA-X79S-UD5-WIFI running latest bios.

    initially, prime05 would crash immediately on small fft. after messing with voltages and clocks, it stayed running for several hours but then one worker stopped and reported:

    Self-test 400K passed!
    [Thu Jun 05 20:54:32 2014]
    FATAL ERROR: Final result was BAA3DBE7, expected: 763B1556.
    Hardware failure detected, consult stress.txt file
    .

    Here are pictures of my current settings. After reading that 4.5-4.6ghz overclocks get too hot, i decided 4.4ghz would be a safe bet for a nice performance boost. however, while running prime95 small ffts, the temps would get to the low 80s, pushing about 87c on core 1.

    what do i need to change in order to reach a rock solid 4.4ghz?

    well,after some testing and fiddling around with voltages, it seems i cannot get higher than 4.3ghz with my current setup. although, i have lowered temps to 80c. they no longer are pushing the danger zone. i also lowered my vcore and set some things back to auto. i ran prime 95 small fft for 8 hours and blend settings for 8 hours as well. i also ran a few custom prime95 torture tests i googled. no errors and no temps above 80c. i gotta say, today feels like a good day.

    will post images with settings. its kind of annyoing my images are limited to 1 per post.....
